The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will provide Funding for registered Continuum of Care (CoC) communities to implement coordinated approaches to reduce the prevalence of unsheltered homelessness; and improve services engagement, health outcomes, and housing stability among highly vulnerable unsheltered individuals and families. This opportunity includes funds set aside specifically to partner with organizations to address homelessness in rural communities.

Applicants may apply for one or both opportunities:

Projects may include:

  • Permanent housing
  • Transitional housing
  • Rapid re-housing
  • Supportive services
  • Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS)

Priorities include:

  • Unsheltered homelessness
  • Unsheltered homelessness and individuals and families experiencing homelessness with severe service needs in rural areas
  • Providing assistance on tribal lands
  • Involving a broad array of stakeholders to reduce homelessness
  • Advancing equity among Black, Indigenous, and other people of color as well as individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ and individuals with disabilities
  • Using a housing first approach that prioritizes rapid placement and stabilization in permanent housing without participation requirements and preconditions
